Sleep Out with Nugent

Homelessness is a real and growing social issue on the streets of Liverpool. People sleeping rough in England has more than doubled in recent years, so we’re raising funds to help those who need our support.

On Friday 4 March 2022, Nugent will be asking supporters to give up their bed for the night to experience just a fraction of the challenges of what it is like to be homeless.

Nugent is working in collaboration with headline sponsor Krol Corlett Construction and our supporters Salvation Army who will also be raising funds for the event’s venue Strawberry Field. Based in Woolton, the iconic site is where John Lennon used to play as a child. Today, it provides sustainable employment opportunities for young people with learning difficulties. For nearly 70 years, it gave some of Liverpool’s most vulnerable children a refuge from turmoil and unhappiness – a safe, calm and spiritual home.

By taking part in Sleep Out with Nugent, you will help to raise money for our New Beginnings service, a partnership with Liverpool Mutual Homes which aims to provide good quality temporary accommodation for individuals who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and have support needs.

The funds raised will provide support packages for those who have been suffering from homelessness when transitioning into their accommodation. It will provide the basic essentials such as pots, pans and towels, items which we often take for granted.
To help raise money for Nugent, you can set up a free fundraising page with Local Giving where you can keep track of your donations, have your own fundraising link and thank your supporters.

We are so grateful to secure our headline sponsor, Krol Corlett Construction!

Krol Corlett Construction Limited are a Liverpool based construction company currently operating across north-west England and North Wales. They have been successfully delivering construction projects for over 50 years.

Krol Corlett continues to take an active role in supporting local charities, with social value at the heart of the company ethos. When taking on new projects, they always look at how they can add value to local communities, whether it’s refurbishing our charity shop or building a bandstand at Strawberry Field.

Krol Corlett generously coordinated the refurbishment of our Allerton Road Charity Shop in April 2021. Since then, it has been a great success attracting a new demographic whilst raising more funds to help the vital work we do.

Krol Corlett is also currently working on-site at the venue constructing a bandstand for open-air performance in the shape and style of the Salvation Army drum!

Krol Corlett continues to be a valued member of the Nugent Family. The sponsorship support will help make such a difference to people’s lives and the communities we serve. On behalf of all of our beneficiaries and from everyone at Nugent, we would like to say a huge thank you for the continued support and generosity!
